    Has anyone tried/succeeded in using their buffet of buffets pass for all the buffets in one 24 hour period?

    I can't imagine that many people would want to eat at 7 different buffets in a days time unless it's just to say that you did. Some of the buffets are pretty popular and the wait times to get in could be a bit much, especially if you planned on going to another one a few hours later. Throw in the additional fee for Caesars and the Rio Seafood buffet too.

    I could see doing 1 for late dinner, another for breakfast the next day, another for an early light lunch, a fourth for an early dinner, and a fifth for a late dinner. To do all 7? That's a lot of running around, in my opinion.

    All of them? Really? No way. We do a late dinner the 1st nite (starving after the travel)....then a lite breakfast and late lunch the next. End with a dinner buffet just before the 24 hours are up. Am Diamond and can bypass the long lines. By then, we are done with buffets for the trip but it is a good deal for us.

    I'm actually going to give it a try! Maybe I'll even do another one of my real-time trip reports, haha. :)

    The one thing to consider with this pass is the time you waste waiting in lines. We bought it 4 years ago when it was $29.99 or $34.99, and even at that price we said we would not do it again.

    Our experience:

    Dinner (late): PH Spice Market Buffet - great food, enjoyable time, moderate wait.
    Breakfast: Plan was Paris, we went there to be met by a line that stretched almost into Ballys. After ditching that, we sprinted over to Flamingo to be met by another line. After finally getting in the buffet had nice views, but the food left something to be desired. It was extremely picked over and nothing special.
    Mid-Aft Lunch/Snack: ended up back at PH again as were in this area.
    Dinner: Rio - HUGE line. Literally took 1.5 hours to get in. Lots of selection, but I can't say it deserved the recognition at the time of being one of the best in Vegas. My main memory is large groups of people stacking crab legs a foot tall on plates and sharing them at pushed together tables.

    Interesting, but not worth it for us.

    well, if you are considering it you should make the additional investment for the line pass (if you are not diamond or above) for just the reason stated above. Even without having to wait in line, doing 4 or 5 would still probably be the max

    Did 3 a couple of years ago, finished with Caesar's, did Paris for breakfast and Planet H. for lunch. It was too much; but I ain't what I used to be.

    Doable if you just grab a nibble at each place. Full meals no way, no how.

    Rio buffet still lets us lowly Platinum people (at least as of last trip) use the rear entrance. Harrah's used to as well, but I don't know if they still do.

    If you exclude Bacchanl and Rio Seafood, I bet I could get an Entree at each of the other buffets, in a "24 hour" period...I think I'll give it a try next trip, lol.
    Literally just spend a day/half EATING and going to Diamond Lounges, LOL.

    I read a blog where the author visited 7 buffets within 24 hours. Something tells me the link is on the board, but I can't seem to find it.

    Never tried hitting all 7 of them. I haven't done the buffets of buffets in a while but it is a good deal if you plan on eating buffets. I usually get 4 meals from it, PH dinner around 9pm, Paris morning brunch around 10:30am, Harrahs or Flamingo for lunch around 2 and then back to PH for dinner. Sometimes go to the Rio for the world carnival buffet there but the line up is to long. I seen the PH line up go up the escalader and along Burgr.
